Featured Farmer:  Groundwire Coffee

Groundwire is a small, quality focused coffee roaster based out of beautiful Northfield.  They source and roast great tasting coffee for people looking to ramp up their morning cup, and look forward to sharing some tasty coffees at the market.  Cody Larson said about his coffee “I want everyone that comes to our tent thinking that coffee is simply a bitter, brown beverage – a delivery system for caffeine and nothing more, to walk away with the realization that coffee can be enjoyable, that it can actually taste good.”

Featured Artist: Wolcott Art
The ultimate recycler, Jennifer uses her plasma cutter to cut bird garden ornament bodies and wings from old, rusty file cabinets.  She puts the parts in a cement mixer with sand to smooth and take off the finish. Then she lays out pieces and paints them with a stencil in one hand and a paint can in the other. She assembles the pieces with no attention to color or pattern — just two types of wings and two types of bird bodies put together randomly.  The stencil colors leave the birds looking like they are cut out of fabric and quilted together.   Also check out Jennifer’s tall steel garden ornaments with whimsical names – Curly Qs and Lollipops.
